Environmental Education Conference
by Priesnitz, Melanie
The K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre and Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens recently had the pleasure of hosting over 330 environmental educators from across Canada during the 2017 Canadian Network for Environmental Education and Communication conference.
130 presenters shared their stories and environmental education experiences with delegates. New connections were made, tears of wonder were shed, and great new ideas were born. One clear take-away from the conference was the feeling of hope for our future from the realization of how many individuals are doing such great work to get people outside and connected to environmental learning.
The range of participants was broad and included Parks Canada employees, NGO staff, school teachers, scientists, high school students, indigenous leaders, magazine publishers, and so many more.
